I am a nationally published freelance photojournalist. I have covered anything from weddings to house fires, homeless people to the President of the United Sates. I owned my business from 2005-2007, shot a ton of weddings, was a staff photographer for a campaign, and freelanced for 5 different newspapers and the AP. I closed my business and my parent’s family business Mail Service Plus where I worked as an assistant manager since I could walk   to work for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, a dream I have had since I was 19 years old. I started out editing photos and worked my way to shooting alongside the greatest group of still photographers I have ever known. I got the experience in photojournalism from shooting for the state’s largest daily newspaper and all that comes with that. I was laid off in 2009 at the peak of the recession. I went to work at Bedford Camera and Video Arkansas’s only locale photographic equipment supplier.  There I was able to spend 5 years completely absorbed in photography.

 In December 2014 I graduated from cosmetology ( The Salon Professional Academy) There I learned men’s and women’s hair cutting, styling, advance color, color correction, as well as skin and nail treatment. I consider myself a “fancy barber” and specialize in giving each and every client what they want. I made this career change to combine my business, creative, and social skills in a career that cannot be replaced by technology.

Everyone becomes a photographer for different reasons and I bought a camera years ago because I wanted to be able to go places and meet people that I could never meet unless I had a camera. I would never say I became a photographer because I am inherently creative I became a photographer because I am inherently curious.
